For five years, fans have been desperately waiting for Taboo Tattoo Season 2. This anime received a mixed response from the viewers as well as the critics. But despite all of that this story was already finished in the first season. Now the fans are more than ready to get the next story of the Taboo Tattoo on their screen.
Taboo Tattoo is a Japanese senine anime. It firstly came from the manga that was released from 2009 until 2017. The manga itself was written by Shinjirou and ran until 13 volumes. Later in July until September 2016, J.C. Staff decided to adapt the story into an anime series directed by Takashi Watanabe. The anime later contains 12 episodes that fans can enjoy. Now the main question is, is there a Taboo Tattoo Season 2?
Taboo Tattoo Season 1: Plotline
Seigi, a martial arts-trained middle schooler, often feels driven to protect the weaker people around him. One day, he defends a homeless man against some punks, and the man gives him a strange tattoo on his palm in return. The tattoo is a secret weapon produced in the arms race between America and the Serinistan Kingdom.
This act leads to a series of events that will pull Seigi into the middle of a conflict between a special U.S. Army unit and the Kingdom of Selinistan, as both are scrambling to collect powerful spell crests called Power Crests, weaponized ancient artifacts of great power which can shift the balance of power in the world.
Seigi finds himself in over his head when a powerful girl, using the same secret weapon, violently pursues him in order to retrieve it. His skill at martial arts may not be enough to keep him alive, but will he be able to learn how to trigger the power of his tattoo in time? This story makes us want to watch more and more
Taboo Tattoo Season 2: Renewal Status
This anime has a score of 6/10 on MyAnimeList based on about 55.000 votes. It is rated just 2.4 out of 5 on Crunchyroll. This indicates, Taboo Tattoo Season 1 actually was not well received in the community. But in Funimation, the story got 4.5/5. So there is still some hope. Hopefully, the demand from the fanbase is strong enough to make the publisher make Taboo Tattoo Season 2 and they can improve a couple of parts of it to raise the rating later
As we already know, the series is neither renewed or canceled. Taboo Tattoo Season 2 from a general perspective was having a low viewership and poor rating. With that, the publisher still hesitates to make the second season. After all, the manga itself was already finished in 2017, so there are no main stories that need to be promoted. With the mixed response, a low rating we probably will never see Taboo Tattoo Season 2
Taboo Tattoo Season 2: Source Material
The inaugural season of the anime came with only twelve episodes. And the manga of the series has a total of thirteen volumes. Therefore, the creators have a lot of source material remaining for further installments. They can make Taboo Tattoo Season 2 and even beyond that as well. And that’s the only positive reason for the anime series to return. However, the chances are very low.
Taboo Tattoo Season 2: Release Date
But we can’t give up yet. There must be a possible way to bring back the Taboo Tattoo Season 2 even though the chance is pretty slim. Even though it's already five years since the debut season, there are other possibilities that J.C. Staff will be made the sequel if the viewers give good critics and some suggestions regarding improvement. They also need to maintain the demand to get Taboo Tattoo Season 2
